Iowa State football: Cyclones pick up top offensive lineman in Iowa


It was just 10 days that Julian Good-Jones was unsure of where to play at. Three days after Iowa State picks up a solid running back commitment, they picked up one of the best offensive linemen in Iowa.

Jones made the news official by announcing his decision on Twitter Friday afternoon.

Jones, a native from Cedar Rapids, may not be as celebrated as running back Devine Ozigbo, but it’s still an important recruit in what’s turning out to be solid 2015 class under Paul Rhoads.

The 6-foot-5, 270-pound offensive lineman picked the Cyclones over Kansas State and Oregon State, the other two schools that officially gave him an offer.

On the same day Ozigbo committed, Good-Jones received an offer from the Beavers. He visited Corvallis in early July, and nearly two weeks later revealed that Good-Jones didn’t decide where he was going just yet.

Iowa State was always in the back of Good-Jones’ mind. He told Cyclone Report that was on the top his list back on May 1st, but an offer from Oregon State really did make him ponder the final decision.

Good-Jones’ commitment gives Iowa State their eighth commitment in the class of 2015. He joins another offensive tackle, 3-star prospect Bryce Meeker, who interestingly enough also plays in Cedar Rapids. He plays at Prairie while Good-Jones played at George Washington. Meeker committed to the Cyclones on June 9th.
